Question about Motherboards

1 Answer

No sound Hey everybody a couple of days ago AVG antivirus was updating into avg 8 , and all of the sound the computer crashed, no more sound, and whenever i tried to run anything, after a few minutes, i would get the blue screen of death and a message showing me that there was some error with an avg file, so i went and removed avf altogether from the pc, and the crashing problem stopped, but, still there was no sound, i totally uninstalled realtek HD audio drivers, removed it all, and made windows install its own drivers, still no sound, reinstalled realtek again and still no sound, i dont have any sound programs or any mixing utilities that might make any conflicts with my current drivers, so i reinstalled windows vista all over again, fresh new copy, and still no sound, installed realtek drivers, and no sound still, when i go to control panel , it says that i dont have any speakers connect, even though they are, and i've tested them on other pc's and they work fine, when i go to sound in control panel , and i click on the speakers that it says its not connected and then go to properties and try to play a test tone under advanced i get a message that says "error-failed to play test tone" im really afraid that something mightve happened to my motherboard, because its not detecting that there are speakers whenever i unplug and plug them back in , which i usually get the auto-popup for it. i hope somebody can help me with this problem, thanx everybody

    before you rush out for a new sound card, check audio has not been disabled in the system bios by avg install prep (assuming its onboard)

At start up, press the del key or on newer boards f2 key (since you have'nt metioned what board you have)this enters you into the system BIOS but try "advanced " on the overhead menu" and look for "audio" enable/ or disable use the enter key on your keyboard to select enable and hopefully thats you fixed if not its a trip to the computer shop. if you need any more assistance look me up at fixya

AVG asks you to pay to the resolve the issue? I believe you have one of those "Rogue" or fake Antivirus software. Please check this link for more information or instructions on how remove the Rogue Antivirus from your PC - click here

I personally Like AVG.. it doesnt hog resources or have nearly as many compatibilty issues as Norton, or McAfee.

You can download a Free trial from the link below to test it out.

As with any Antivirus, Uninstall any other antiviruses you have before installing AVG.

Even if the old antivirus is deactivated, it will still interfere with a proper installation, and also it will actually make your computer more vulnerable to leave the old anti-virus installed.

No Data showing any Partition in my hard disk

I am unsure of what you were trying to do but.

You may want to remove the hard drive from the computer and place it in another computer alongside the one that is already in there.

Boot that computer and check to see if you can access the drive and any data.
If you cannot then there is a good chance that something you did has wiped that information

Trying to add more ram to an old computer-is it doable

Is your AVG antivirus pack a free version downloaded from the net? If so, discard it. Try windows DEfender if your OS is genuine,else download BitDefender 10. Putting any antivirus software will always slow it down when on the net, so the best solutuin is to put a genuine antivirus software. If u want to increase RAM, do so. Look for the 2 long(approx6-7 inches) DIMM slots, take out one so that u can buy one compatible to the ones in ur PC.....sodeep

Anti Virus

Here is what I would do.

First I would start off by downloading the free trial of ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus. Afterward I would scan my system (In-Depth Scan) with the free trial of NOD32 (It doesn't use a lot of system resources). Next I would download the free version of Ad-Aware 2008. After the anti-virus scan finished I would scan my system with Ad-Aware (Full Scan). Next I would download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. After Ad-Aware finishes scanning I would start a scan with Spybot. Next I would download and install AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After Spybot finishes scanning I would run an in-depth search on all hard-drives with the use of AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

If that doesn't whack it, fighting this thing might not be worth it. Reinstall the windows operating system after you back up any files which you absolutely HAVE to keep.
